  1. Hi, the metal spring should hook onto the inside of the frame to spring it back into place when dislodged. The back of the actual mirror should have a ring of clips on the back side, which snap into the mirror holder. If the frame is damaged you might be better off at a 'scrappie' and replace the whole assembly.

    Hafnia Hi, As far as I understand, you remove the vent hose, and it should unscrew from the crankcase.Try using a strap wrench (Oil Filter removal tool) if you can't get your hand or Goose Neck Pliers to it.
  3. Mick F Hi,If you understand how an 'Epicyclic' gear works you have your answer. The Ring gear is driven via the Planetary gears by the Sun gear and vice versa. One side either Ring or Sun drives the wheels. Therefore when the wheels turn they will turn the attached gear (say the Ring), which will then spin the Planetary gears and keep the Sun gear turning. That's also how you can charge the battery going downhill. There's a 'You Tube' clip that explains it , albeit on an Auris, but the Yaris is the same idea.
  4. Hi, the Yaris is a front wheel drive car. Even if you select 'N' the drive wheels will still turn the 'Epicyclic' gear. You have to lift the front wheels off the ground to tow for any distance or above 10mph. Lift front wheels and release the Handbrake and away you go. You can lift the wheels onto a 'Dolly' if required.
  5. Konrad Hi, It would depend on wether you want it in 'Park' mode (permanent live) or On just when driving.. .
  6. Mick Hi, Probably because there's no Kinetic energy recovery (KERS) for Reverse.
  7. Hafnia Hi, Yes it's perfectly normal. Check the other side to convince yourself. They're there to decrease the contact area to help prevent the hub and drum sticking together. 😀
  8. Hi, what's the answer to getting rid?? Is it replace MAF??
  9. George Hi, you can use any Ethylene Glycol based fluid. The less dilution the better the frost protection. Should take approx 4.5 lts (1 Imp Gall). Also make sure it has corrosion protection. Colour doesn't really matter, just read the label. Don't use just water, except as an emergency last resort.
  10. Hi, I'm with 'Heidfirst' R/H drive vehicles, Reverse light on Left, and Fog Light on Right, Opposite way round for L/H drive.
  11. Serjan Hi, with the info supplied by 'Heidfirst' I fitted the 'Sat Nav' module to upgrade my wife's 'Touch 2 about 6 months ago.. It took me about 30 mins all in. You'll need the GPS Ariel and the 2 x mount brackets (usually in place) . Toyota will supply and fit for about £800, so like you I got an e-bay job and.Insistrd on getting the GPS Aerial, and connection cables. I can understand the Tom Tom thinking, nut not for me.I also registered it through 'My Toyota', so it shows up on car spec sheet.
  12. Christos Hi, The system in your photo is an old set up. and I don't think it's Touch & Go at all, even the Air Con set up is early model.
  13. Hafnia Hi, try www.eurocarparts.com put in your car details etc. I just checked, a set of rear brake shoes around Euro 50. Alternative, try e-bay for around Euro 20
  14. Hi, Try checking your Battery Earth lead for security. It sounds like the 'Pre-Engage' is not engaging.
  15. Hi, there are two options, depending on Year. a) Grip the fwd edge and sharp tug upwards should do it. b) On the L/H seat there are two mounts, release the Plastic trim covers (3 hooks on each) and expose the mount (Torx) bolts. 2 on outer foot, 1 on inner...
